Richard Pryor Biopic Loses Lee Daniels as Its Director
(via The Wrap)
The on-going saga of trying to get a Richard Pryor movie made continues.
For several reasons, a biopic on the life and times of legendary comedian Richard Pryor has been very difficult to make. Trying to find the right person to play Pryor, issues with who from Pryor’s life supports the story that’s being adapted, etc. have all slowed the process.
This latest attempt by The Weinstein Company to make a film about Pryor suffered another blow by losing award winning director Lee Daniels due to scheduling issues.
There’s no word on who will replace them, but we hope, whoever they are, that they’re found soon.

After all the years and accompanying problems of trying to do some sort of filmic retelling of any portion of Pryor’s life story, documentary or narrative, one can only hope that now it’s smooth sailing from here all the way to the theatrical release.
